Thought I'd start a topic on what we all have as wall papers for our desktop screens, so feel free to post yours!

Here are my rotating wallpapers (windows 7 system)

Hi folks

well I use my wife's laptop and when I bought it for her I searched around and then put this desktop on it (says a lot)



If it was my laptop I like this Pre Raphaelite image



but then again I also really like this one Embarassed (and I made her into a twin lads cheers cheers )



As Harry Hill might say which is better? There's only one way to find out ......FIGHT!!!

I used to have an old tower type computer back in the days when I liked Picasso a lot. Guernica was the desktop but in the end I found it a bit depressing. Then it blew up anyway and I hadn't backed anything up so thousands of paintings images I had went west. Fortunately it happened at a time when I wasn't doing any OU work.

That seems odd Damien. You have probably tried but, right click on the thumbnail of your picture and select, "Set as wallpaper". That should do the trick. If not check it is in jpeg format. If not we will have to did a little deeper..

Hi Damien

(I'm just visiting the twins really Very Happy but.......)

In Vista it's

right click on blank area of desktop

select personalise

select desktop background

select browse and then find your image in pictures.

Can't see it being too much different in 7 (but maybe it is - I aint a pc geek cyclops )

Regards Dave

It wants me to add a theme from the theme menu but doesn't say how to create a theme.

As I understand it a theme is something very different - like the theme for this page is blue filled boxes and some type etc. I don't think you are in the right place (but I've not seen 7).At step two above I have the option to choose theme instead of select desktop background.

Will have to have a think - I think you should be able to get it full screen.

try pressing PRTSY SYSRQ button on keyboard (might be print screen button on yours) then paste into paint and save, then post that image then we can see what you have.

No Barry

HS93 is obviously a classic minimalist having chosen two exactly the same and uninterupted shades of blue grey - both modern masterpieces. His rejection of desktop clutter and abstraction reveals an incisive mind and a strength of focussed purpose neccessary for his artistic bent - the model.

clown take an OU humanities course and you can BS with the best of them clown

If you have a starter version of windows seven, it doesn't allow you to change the desktop wallpaper believe it or not. My wife has just got a new laptop, and is going to upgrade it to a different version as it is so bad.
